List of The Professionals Early Songvids

From Fanlore
Jump to: navigation, search

In 2003, Istia began compiling a list of Professionals songvids that had been made to date. The initial list heavily favored songvids made in the 1990s and many of the early vids from the 1980s were missing.

In the years after the list was compiled, and Professionals episodes became more widely available on DVD, fans began making digital vids -- many of these vids were distributed online. This made it difficult to maintain a master list of all Pros vids. Istia did continue to add to her list of vids, and an updated version, with corrections and additions through 2009 can be found here.

Below is a partial list (with much thanks to Istia) of vids made through 2003. It is reposted here with permission.

Names have been updated to reflect Fanlore's name usage/permissions.

Please feel free to add information!
